(Rome, Georgia) – Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) held a High School Appreciation Luncheon and Information Program on Tuesday, March 24, at the Gordon County Campus in Calhoun.

The program was intended to show gratitude to the faculty and staff from area High Schools. During the program, information was provided about various high school initiatives, dual enrollment courses, and partnerships in GNTC’s nine county service area.

The keynote speaker for the presentation was Pete McDonald, president of GNTC. McDonald said that all of the High School partners are very critical to the success of the various communities in the Northwest Georgia region.

“I just wanted to emphasize how important you are to us, our effort to provide dual enrollment opportunities, and getting students on their chosen career path,” said McDonald.

Carol Abrams, high school initiatives coordinator, discussed GNTC’s dual enrollment programs that provide students with the opportunity to gain college credit while still in high school.

“In 2010 we had 208 dual enrollment students,” said Abrams. “As of this year we have about 1300 dual enrollment students.”

In 2014 Georgia Northwestern had the largest number of dual enrollment students out of all of the technical colleges in the state of Georgia according to the 2014 End of Year Enrollment Report issued by the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG). Georgia Northwestern also was the top technical college for dual enrollment students on the 2013 report.

Many dual enrollment courses also offer students the opportunity to earn an industry certificate, so students have the option of either entering the workforce upon graduation from high school or continuing their education. Either way, they begin their selected career path with a head start.

Other speakers at the luncheon were Stuart Phillips, associate vice president of Student Affairs at GNTC; David Stephenson, athletics coordinator at GNTC; and Jason Gamel, director of institutional advancement at GNTC.

Georgia Northwestern Technical College serves Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Murray, Polk, Walker, and Whitfield counties in Georgia with campuses located in Floyd, Gordon, Polk, Walker, and Whitfield counties. Approximately 16,000 people benefit from GNTC’s credit and noncredit programs, making it the largest college in Northwest Georgia and the fifth largest technical college in Georgia.
